Welcome to the West End
At West End Ciderhouse, we specialize in naturally gluten-free, farmhouse style hard cider made from 100% Ohio grown apples. We also feature a full line of spirits from West End Distillery, our sister-company located just across the street. Try one of our famous craft cocktails, made the way it was meant to be: with fresh-squeezed juices, seasonal & local produce, our very own house-made bitters, syrups, and infusions, and a vast and distinctive collection of fine spirits from around the block & around the world!
Our mission at West End Distillery (formerly Fifth Element Spirits) is to use the finest, locally-sourced fruits, grains, roots, and herbs to produce top-shelf spirits that embody flavors and styles uniquely Appalachian. After a long renovation & permit process, we began production in 2019, a block or so from the West End Ciderhouse, right here in the westside neighborhood of Athens, Ohio. For tours and questions, please contact us.
